POINTS

iOS 6 – 4

Android 4.1 – 5.5

Windows Phone 8 – 0.5

In conclusion, although Android 4.1 won the most categories, three were draws. Obviously in this comparing post, I shouldn’t have included Windows Phone 8 because it only won 0.5 points, which is quite pathetic. In the drawn categories, iOS 6 should have won Multi-Core Processors and High Resolution, but Android 4.1 should have won Offline Maps. This leaves the points at 6 for iOS 6 and 6.5 for Android 4.1. Also, some of the categories points should have been split, with Multitasking it is 0.25 for iOS 6 and 0.75 for Android 4.1, changing the points to 6.25 apiece. I would not like to leave this post as a draw, so due to personal favouritism…

WINNER: iOS 6
